Re-running configure.sh after Configuration

If the configure.sh script is initially run without the -genkeys option, the script generates a ssl_keystore file for use by the web server for the MapR Control System (MCS).

Then if the configure.sh script is re-run with the -genkeys option, the system detects the existing ssl_keystore file and exits with an error to prevent inadvertent deletion or reuse of the ssl_keystore file.

Note: For general information on certificates, see SSL Certificates.
To re-run configure.sh on clusters without security features enabled:
  1. Manually delete the ssl_keystore file on each node.
  2. Run the configure.sh -genkeys command.
Note: The contents of the ssl_keystore file are unique to each node.
To re-run configure.sh on clusters where the contents of the ssl_keystore file are customized:
  1. Run the configure.sh -genkeys -nocerts command to preserve your customizations.

SSL Keys Error Message

The error message will look similar to the following example:
